To feature Playboy, Mafia II is as well. Sales down Hef?

That said I think we are starting to see the heavy use of advertising in Games, various articles have been talking about this for a while.

Kinda of disappointing, I don't mind it too much as long as it's done subtlety but this blatant in your face massaging (Verizon/Energizer + Alan Wake)is sickening. There was even an Achievement associated with watching a Verizon commercial on an in game T.V. Ughh...

Seeing the various screen shots it looks like it will be pretty blatant in Dead Rising 2 as well.
Having a playboy patch on a racing jacket as one of your sponsors..fine but What does running around with a playboy magazine in your hand have to do with killing Zombies?

I'm seriously considering canceling my Amazon order now.

Well, it's not like Dead Rising is a very deep game to begin with. Boob-teasing doesn't really seem to be below it.

but to me that's not the point.
Just like with everything these guys will carry it too far and we'll be watching commercials during game loads because that was even suggested in some of those articles.

I don't know about you but I game to get away from the real world for a while.
